Pig Trap Paper to be Presented at Pipeline Pigging Conference

(January 23rd 2008)

Peter Fretwell, Pigging Specialist at PE, will be presenting a Technical Paper titled

Pig Trap Design - Recent Innovations and the Importance of Planned Maintenance & Inspection Procedures

at the Pipeline Pigging & Integrity Management Conference being held at The Marriott Westchase Hotel, Houston on the 12-14th February 2008.

The paper will highlight considerations made during the design phase of a pig trap. It will also consider the purpose of various components and how these differ for the different trap types. It will look at innovations in pig trap design, including the recent development and launch of AMPL, an automatic multiple pig launching system from PE. Finally the paper will consider the value of identifying any issues regarding a trap and maintenance of equipment.

PE also has an exhibition stand (Stand number 303) at this event where visitors will be able to see a fully animated process demonstrating the AMPL system as well as other pipeline pigging products and services.
